Calling out for ideas for our upcoming seminar series
The Centre for Culture, Ethnicity and Health in partnership with Monash University’s School of Nursing and Midwifery will launch a series of three seminars to celebrate their new partnership and to provide a platform for scholars, practitioners, community partners, and policymakers to share ideas, knowledge and experience about migration, settlement, multiculturalism and cultural competence. We have three topics for focus – but we want to hear from you – what are some of the details, conversations, and discussions you’d like to hear around these topics?
- How do we prepare the future service sector workforce for our diverse communities? Cultural competence of course!
- It takes a village: refugee and migrant settlement in regional Australia
- Practice innovations: learning from each other
Hear from our latest #healthliteracy course graduates on how they’ve made their services easier to use.

CEH has been funded by the Victorian Department of Health to raise awareness about Long COVID in 10 culturally diverse communities across six Local Government Areas. These communities were selected due to the number of COVID-19 cases they recorded in the past year.
CEH is one of three agencies involved in a new state-wide project aimed at encouraging vaccination in CALD Communities: Vaccine Voices.
